Showbiz Roundup: Shhh, did you hear?

Ramsay’s Air Their Dirty Laundry

Gordon Ramsay is known for his fiery temper however he is usually fairly quiet about his private life… until now. The celebrity chef has gone public after a row with his wife Tana’s family turned nasty. Gordon sacked father-in-law Chris Hutcheson from his position as CEO of Gordon Ramsay Holdings last month after hiring a private detective to look into inconsistencies in his business dealings. The pair, who had been business partners for 12 years, built up the Ramsay empire together with Gordon often looking up to Chris for fatherly advice. Gordon also sacked his brother-in-law and nephew after he felt their positions in the company had also become untenable. Initially Gordon kept a dignified silence even after Chris gave an interview where he suggested that the chef was on drug, something Gordon strongly denies, and saying ‘I know where the bodies are buried.’ But after he discovered that Chris’s wife Greta told her daughter Tana that her family didn’t want to see her until she ‘disposed’ of her husband, he finally cracked and published an astonish open letter in the Evening Standard.

‘Listening to Tana is floods of tears reading your letter from you asking that she stays away from her family is so awfully wrong,’ he wrote. “Chris’s away days were rarely what I thought they were. I know this must be hard for you Greta but your [sic] punishing your daughter and our four children, for all the wrong reasons, is so sad.”

A few more buries bodies may be revealed before this story ends!

Racy Jen Sheds Good Girl Image

Jennifer Aniston continues her quest to quit playing nice. “She is tired of everyone thinking that she’s such a good girl. It’s boring for her,” says our Aniston insider. “She’s told her agents she only wants to play sexed up bad girls for a while. Besides, she’s never been more confident about her body and she wants to show it off a little.” And Aniston’s directive appears to be working. The former Friends star recently finished filming Horrible Bosses where she’ll be totally naked in her role as a nymphomaniac dentist. And now, sources say that Jen has just signed up for Buttercup, that sounds just as racy. “Jen’s character has phone sex!” says the source, “She is on the phone with this guy and she is nearly naked and lying on her bed. She has one hand on the phone and one in her knickers!”

Tom And Katie To Live Separately?

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are enjoying a new warmth in their relationship because, according to a source close to the couple, Tom finally agreed to buy wife Katie her own place. “Currently they live in a 12 bedroom mansion in Beverly Hills with his sister Cass, her kids and Tom’s mom,” the source says. “It’s massive: 10,000 square feet, 3 guest houses and a staff of 20 underfoot at all times. But Katie just felt overwhelmed and had no privacy at all.” However after much pleading, Tom finally broke down and purchased a small home for Katie so she can go and hang out there with just Suri when she wants. “It’s their little secret getaway. Just four bedrooms, with a small swimming pool,” the source says. “Tom and Katie hang out there with Tom’s teenaged kids and Suri. They have garden bbq’s and Katie happily bakes cupcakes. It’s more of the normal life she’s used to and it’s made her really happy.”

Her Madgesty Demands Personal Service

Madonna gives new meaning to the words ‘high maintenance.” The superstar has long travelled on planes with home cooked meals packed for her by her live in chefs but now the star has been bringing along her staff when she goes out to restaurants! Her Madgesty, who was once quoted saying: “I don’t really eat food in restaurants; you can never be sure what’s in it, can you?” recently ate at New York’s posh midtown restaurant Hakubai and took her Japanese chef with her. “He made her soba noodles and sushi,” a New York insider revealed. “Madonna never uses any oil or salt in her food and she wants to make sure everything is prepared to her exacting standards. She’s not taking any chances with her body. She seriously cannot relax.” Maybe if she’d paid as much attention to her attitude as she does to her figure– she may have kept former BFF Gwyenth Paltrow. Just saying…

Kate Turns to Religion to Save Relationship

Kate Hudson is the latest celebrity to convert to Jewish religious movement Kaballah. “Kate is finally in a stable relationship with Matt Bellamy for the first time in years, and she really wants this to work,” a source says. “Her track record with men is pretty dismal and she is trying to become more grounded and centred. She even has a private Kaballah tutor right now.” Kate joins new convert Naomi Campbell who recently claimed, “I study Kabbalah because it takes me to a positive, calm place.”  Let’s hope it’s more successful for Kate than it seems to be for Naomi.
